Meghan Markle Faces Criticism for Underestimating Royal Family Scrutiny

When Meghan Markle wed Prince Harry in May 2018, she became a part of the Royal Family, a move that exposed her to intense global scrutiny. The Duchess of Sussex, known for her previous acting career and notably her role as Rachel Zane in the Netflix series Suits, garnered attention for her relationship with Prince Harry, which attracted widespread media coverage.

However, Meghan’s perspective on the challenges of being married into the Royal Family has drawn criticism from relationship expert Kate Mansfield. Mansfield voices her opinion on Meghan’s misjudgment of the reality she would encounter as a royal, stating, “I think that one of the reasons that Meghan has had so much negative press is that she seems to have completely underestimated the reality of what it means to be married into the Royal Family. Wanting privacy and to have her way of things is simply delusional. For the common person looking in, although we might have some sympathy for the invasion of privacy, the fact that she married into such huge privilege counters this.” Mansfield adds that Meghan might have to accept the situation and endure the challenges that come with it.

Simultaneously, a bus tour advertised as the ‘Royal Celebrity Tour of Los Angeles and Montecito’ has stirred controversy. The tour, led by Karl Larsen, a friend of Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, offers an experience that showcases celebrity hotspots, including locations associated with the Sussexes. However, this initiative has faced backlash due to concerns about privacy intrusion.

Christopher Bouzy, a tech entrepreneur, criticizes the tour as a form of “harassment” directed at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Bouzy emphasizes that this instance exemplifies the worrying transition from online harassment to real-world consequences. He underscores the need for robust legislation to address this growing problem.

In response to the backlash, Larsen clarifies his intentions, stating that he does not plan to drive past the Sussexes’ Montecito mansion. Instead, he aims to focus on places relevant to Meghan’s upbringing, including restaurants and spots she frequented. Tripening, the platform where the tour was advertised, has since removed the listing from its platform.
